Sleat, Isle of Skye

This excellent detached bungalow is situated on the Sleat Peninsula in the south of Skye, that part of the island which is often called 'The Garden of Skye'.  It stands in its own large garden where there is a swing and a couple of small ponds (care with young children!) and has a lovely open aspect to the south east with views across the Sound of Sleat to Beinn Sgritheal on the mainland, after which the cottage is named.  There is a sheltered and secluded shingle and sand beach just a short stroll away and the cottage has ample off-road parking.

Inside, the house is bright and spacious, with two double and two single bedrooms, a large, beamed sitting room with open fire, and a dining kitchen with French doors to the garden.

However, if you don't wish to eat in every night, you are spoiled for choice in this part of Skye, with the Eilean Iarmain Hotel a short drive along the road, and Lady Claire Macdonald's Kinloch House a few miles away towards Broadford.  The Ardvasar Hotel to the south also serves good meals.  The cottage is also within walking distance of the Gaelic College, which hosts lots of Gaelic cultural events.

It is no wonder that Skye is arguably the most popular Scottish island for holidays.  Climbers, of course, come to tackle the spectacular Cuillins, of which you have an amazing view just over the back of the peninsula near Ord (where there are also great picnic sites on the machair.)  There are plenty of walking opportunities too for the less energetic as well as all the wonderful off-shore and on-shore wildlife to enjoy.  From Ardvasar, you can take Seafari trips, and whilst there you can also visit the  Clan Donald Centre and gardens at Armadale Castle.  This is also a popular area for game and sea fishing.

To the north is Broadford (13m), which has a supermarket, shops, petrol, banks etc.  It's also worth taking the little single track road down to the Glenelg ferry (runs April-October) at Kylerhea.  Whether you take the ferry or not, it's a spectacular road and you can visit the otter hide at Kylerhea at the same time.

And then, to the north, all the breathtaking scenery of Skye awaits you, Portree, Dunvegan, the Coral Beaches, the Old Man of Storr, the Quiraing, the list is endless and you will doubtless be back for another stay in this snug and most comfortable cottage,

Oil central heating, electricity and bed linen are all INCLUDED in the rental and towels are available for hire to overseas visitors only.  Up to two well-behaved dogs are welcome by arrangement.  Smoking is not permitted in the cottage.  There is a telephone for incoming calls.  Wi-Fi is available, subject to provider.

Aitken party, Stirling 11/06/2011

Had a great time. Cottage is lovely. Could not have asked for better.We loved the secret garden with swing & chute. Jock particularly liked hiding in the long grass. Highly recommend fishing at Armadale pier. Nothing better than catching,gutting & cooking our own mackerel. Thanks for a lovely holiday.We will definitely be back.

What a glorious week. The house is in a fantastic location.The views are terrific. We highly recommend a trip to Plockton....eat lunch outside Plockton Inn. Also don't miss a trip around Ord Tarskavaig loop. The views and beaches are stunning. Cant wait to come back. Please book the weather for us.

Brilliant, brilliant lodge. All the comforts we could ask for. A beautiful dog-friendly garden & profound loveliness in every nook & cranny. Thank you.

Waller party, Cleveland 08/10/2011

We had a wonderful holiday on the Isle of Skye. The cottage has been a fantastic place to stay. Very cosy. We have enjoyed the open fire on the cold nights. The weather has been very good to us. We came prepared for rain but had some glorious sunny days. We will definitely recommend the cottage and the Isle of Skye to our friends.

Sunny family, London 19/04/2012

Very nice cottage. Had a fantastic holiday. Enjoyed the games provided in the kids games. Hope to visit again in the Summer.

Berrie family, Aberdeenshire 14/07/2012

Such a homely & comfortable cottage, great base from which to explore the island, both locally and further afield. Good fun at Ord beach & coral beach@ Dunvegan. Very friendly welcome at Portree Stables (Struan Rd 2 miles from Portree). Also went quad biking at Clan Donald. Weather mostly very good, so no opportunity to light the fire, maybe next time !!

Farve party, Ross-shire 21/07/2012

An excellent week in this, the best part of a magnificent island. Midges only ferocious as we loaded the car to leave!

Middleberg party, Netherlands 11/08/2012

We had a wonderfull vacation in this great house. Great base to discover Skye, with wonderfull views of the sea & of course the mountains. The weather was great so we enjoyed the sea safari trip & also a drive to the North West of the island was spectacular. Glendale offered a few gems with the toy museum (closes end of 2012 ) and Skye Silver and very helpful locals! Plockton was also very chaming and worthwhile day out with lunch at Plockton Hotel in the bay. Our trip was rounded off with Whiskey tasting at Eilean Larmin. We would recommend a trip to Skye to everyone and this house is an excellent base with great facilities, space and a garden with a view!
